Lucy. As in Lucille Ball the actress and Lucy & Ricky Ricardo the real-life married couple of “I Love Lucy!” I try to ‘splain to my kids why dad calls me Lucy every once in a while. Well, it’s because I can’t sit still; always trying to think of new ideas to occupy my brain and my time. Lucy, the hilarious 1950’s housewife, was always up to something. And Ricky. He was the one who had to put up with her “shenanigans.” (I really need to go back and watch some of those classic old episodes and get some more material.)
So, my latest thing is starting this blog. You probably can tell this is my first official post. I realize I’m a little late to the blogosphere, considering the term itself was coined back in 1999. But, who doesn’t agree, it’s better to arrive late to the party than not at all! I may have to have an extra drink or two to fit in, but I’m going to do my best to not let my newbie-ness show all the time.
And this blog thing has culminated from another “newer thing” that I’ve been into for about six months now, and that is essential oils. I was fortunate enough to have been introduced to Young Living Essential Oils by my sister. She had been finding huge success in the health of her family after using many of the different types of oils. Well, after much protest that “I just don’t need that type of thing” and “my family is fairly healthy anyway” divine intervention happened and I jumped on board the oil train. I started seeing many of my friends either desperately needing or already using these oils for their various ailments ranging from mild stress & muscle aches to migraines and sleep disorders. I will have lots more to say about my oil journey so far, but suffice to say I am head-over-heels in love with them!
And do you even need an explanation on the cocktail thing? I’ve always found cooking and mixing and creating to be great fun and the actual drinking and eating part isn’t that bad either. So it took me no time to combine my oils with cocktails and other recipes. The possibilities are limitless. We are going to have a great time!
